Pioneer Woman’s Lasagna

 
 
I have always been a huge fan of lasagna.  This is my take on Pioneer Woman’s Lasagna.  I used to make it using jarred spagetti sauce (I like prego) which is almost just as good and the family always raved about it.  This recipe calls for making your own sauce, which I would highly recommend.  But, if you are short on time, just use the jarred stuff.

  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 6 ounce cans tomato paste
  • 2 6.5 ounce cans canned tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil leaves
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 12 lasagna noodles
  • 16 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 pound mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a Dutch oven, cook sausage, ground beef, onion, and garlic over medium heat until browned. Add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce, and water. Add sugar, basil, fennel seeds, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons parsley. Cover and simmer for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • Cook lasagna noodles in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes. Drain noodles, and rinse with cold water. In a large mixing bowl, combine ricotta cheese with egg, remaining parsley, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • To assemble, spread 1 1/2 cups of meat sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Arrange 6 noodles lengthwise over meat sauce. Spread with one half of the ricotta cheese mixture. Top with a third of mozzarella cheese slices. Spoon 1 1/2 cups meat sauce over mozzarella, and sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Repeat layers, and top with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Cover with foil.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil, and bake an additional 25 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes before serving.
